Wearing Gemstone with Rudraksha
Wearing a combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha is the best way to make the most of it. Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy® (RRST®) devised by Neeta Singhal employs the use of both Agate gems and Rudraksha beads. It is a holistic healing therapy that uses the curative and healing properties of Rudraksha and Gemstones to balance chakras.
After consultation, the blocked chakras that are causing the mental, emotional and physical issues are identified and a suitable combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha is recommended. As per the cosmic colour they emit, the gemstones work on specific chakras. So Green Agate works for Anahata Chakra while Red agate works on Muladhara chakra. These powerful agents of energy work on releasing the negative energy stored in the form of stress in the blocked chakras, thereby activating them and tuning them to their natural state. Chakras become imbalanced when your thoughts and attitudes tend towards fears and negativity when facing challenging situations in life. Blocked Chakras manifest emotional disorders and physical ailments. It is only after the blocked Chakras are balanced and activated that you can transform your life of suffering, obstacles, and confusions into love, success, and happiness.

Dear Neeta, Thank you for the mala and the emerald which arrived a few days ago. It all looks very good. Very nice handywork. Also thank you for the cassette. The rendering of the Mrityunjaya mantra is really very wonderful. Sincerely and with the best wishes Ketil Helmersberg
Namaste Sri DharmaDev Arya & Friends, Sisters and Brothers, sorry for long absence and missed you all. Been a busy 3 odd months. Dropping by to say hi to everyone and also to mention that I'd done a 40-day discipline with a Navratna Mala which I got from Rudra Centre India. The results? Absolutely wonderful. For 10 years, everything in my life was blocked and there was no movement. I was neither here nor there. "In limbo" was the best description I could give. Upon 30-odd days of wearing the Navratna mala, everything started happening. All that was stagnant began moving at last. And fast t
Hi Neetaji, Dhramadevji I collected my fedex package from the jewel osco near my home. I really appreciate the excellent customer service you have at Rudra Center. I really like my mala (done in silver). My sister's mala looks awesome as well (sphatik + emerald+rudrakhsa). I was really impressed with the packaging that you had done. The bags + the japa mala bag were really great. I have done pooja and have started wearing my mala as well as doing ganesh japa with my custom rosary. pranaam Desikan
